A Volunteer Wrote: Cue the “awwwssss….” This Rubenesque dear heart has been owned for the entirety of her ten years, lived with two children, including an infant, and is accustomed to lots of children visiting. She has also spent her life living with a large male dog….who caused her to become blind in one eye, poor angel girl—but she is great with dogs, so not her bad. She shares every kind of toy and treat, which is amazing to think of only when you consider how many treats she has had in the last decade. We don’t begrudge her a single one as she is so deserving of them, but it has put a little bit of weight on her. Like, oh, maybe…50 pounds? But there’s only more to love! And we LOVE her. She’s a dream, for real. She’s great on a leash, gets back into her kennel without complaint, snuggles like no one’s business, and knows how to sit and give paw. Forget “healthy weight”—give this extraordinary girl the home she deserves for the rest of her life and you can feed her bonbons as far as we’re concerned. We’re in love, and whatever works for the two of you. We can only imagine what might happen with some regular walks, but then there would be less to love….
Lady’s family got her from a friend when she was a puppy ~10 years ago. Her owner had to surrender her because she doesn’t have a place to stay. Lady was recently over 100 lbs but has been on diet food and going for walks and has lost some weight. She’s blind in her left eye, injured by another dog.
Lady is friendly/outgoing with new people. She lived with 2 children ages 0-10 years and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. Other children visited often. Lady likes to sprawl out in the middle of them to get attention. She plays gently with people. Lady lived with a large male dog for nearly 9 years since he was a puppy. They were relaxed and affectionate with each other until they started fighting 3 years ago. They’ve had 3 fights since then, most recently in Nov. 2015. Lady has received puncture wounds from the other dog, including ones that caused swelling of her left eye the first time. Lady only inflicted a small scratch-like mark on the other dog during their second fight ~6 months ago, and has never bit another animal. The dogs have been staying with another large female dog for ~5 months. That dog sometimes growls at Lady and Lady growls back, but then they’re separated. Lady is relaxed and playful with dogs she meets outside. Lady has never bit any people.
Lady is anxious and barks during storms. She’s friendly with strangers who approach her home/family. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, or wakes her up.
Lady’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, mellow, loving, caring, and low energy. She loves to be pet and held. She follows her owner around at home. She lived inside and slept on a dog bed. She ate dry and wet Wellness diet food. She enjoys cheese omelets, spaghetti, rice, chicken, and all dog treats, but not fruit, as treats. Lady is housetrained, doesn’t have accidents, and potties outside on dirt or grass. She’s well-behaved while home alone. She was crated when she was a puppy but doesn’t need to be anymore. She knows sit and give paw. She went for brisk walks and didn’t pull on her leash. Off-leash at the park, she wandered but came when called.
Lady had soft body and open mouth during her intake. She sat often. She wagged her tail low and soft when we pet her, talked to her, scanned her (-), collared her, and positioned her for pictures. She walked nicely on her leash. She ignored other dogs in the lobby.
